    I don't really know what;s going on -- this has all happened fairly recently.

    I can't access much of the internet except thru Safari and Ichat.

    Adium won't connect, it tells me "host is down"
    Mail won't send, it also says "error 64: host is down"
    My bittorrent won't work either.
    I've opened my firewall thru system preferences and don't know what to do.
    I'm using a 2Wire router.

    Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot?

    Don't know?

    If I had to throw a wild guess I would say check to make sure you don't have some strange proxy setting under the Advanced button in Network.
